The Press Release:
October 21st 2005 is a historic date for every NIGHTWISH fan – many tears flowed, yet the foundation was laid for a new beginning and the ongoing continuity of the band. What subsequently appeared as the DVD titled End Of An Era was not only the final show of their mega-selling “Once” tour, but also the very last joint performance with their singer Tarja Turunen. Due to all of these facets and more, the DVD will give you goose bumps many times over, yet it crowns the end of the Tarja chapter with a unique show that could hardly have been better or more spectacular. The setlist is stunning and contains 18 hymns, such as the opening “Dark Chest Of Wonders,” “Sleeping Sun,” “Nemo” and “Bless The Child” through to the final “Wish I Had An Angel”. If you do not already own this live masterpiece, you can now look forward to the extensive new edition.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: At the time of this writing, I can proudly exclaim that I’ve been a fan of Nightwish for most of their existence and have been fortunate enough to see them during their transitions in the lead vocalist department. They remain one of my favorite Metal bands and opened my eyes to a new form of sonic sound from a region I barely knew anything about. When the dramatic happening had occurred for the band I had managed to see them twice and as you can imagine it left so many fans shocked and in dismay. I’ll not say anything else here because I am getting myself a copy of the Blu-ray/CD one and will update the reviews that were done of the CD HERE and the DVD HERE. At the time when it was available here, I had to get two separate items so it will be nice to have this on one release to free up a slot in my music library. What do you readers think about this Nightwish release being re-issued? A lot of you younger fans might never have experienced Tarja and only knew Anette or Floor in the band unless you watched old YouTube videos.
